I agree with that. The interpretation of how a shopping cart works like is
ambiguous as I talked aver "actual" carts and others about "virtual" ones.
;-) So the ATM example is a bit clearer. Why not joining us at rest-discuss
for further discussions? :-)





As to more important points, I think I get it: resource state (managed by
resource owner) and discussion state (only managed by client) is an
important distinction.
Shopping cart not being a good (enough) use case to help understand bigger
And there being many areas that could be discussed but that go beyond
general focus (and interest).
